    Below is Einstein's Famous Riddle. When he wrote this riddle, he said 98% of the World would not be able to solve it.

    Can you? Are you the in top 2% of intelligent people in the World?



    1. There are 5 houses in five different colours
    2. In each house lives a person with a different Nationality
    3. These five owners drink a certain type of Beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar and keep a certain pet
    4. No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same beverage

    The Question is: Who owns the fish?

    1) The Brit guy lives in the Red house
    2) The Swede keeps dogs as pets
    3) The Dane drinks tea
    4) The green house is on the left of the white house
    5) The green house owner drinks coffee
    6) The person who smokes Pall Mall Rears Birds
    7) The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
    8) The man living right in the center drinks milk
    9) The Norwegian lives in the first house
    10) The man who smokes Blends lives next to the one who has cats
    11) The man who keeps horses lives next to the one that smokes Dunhill
    12) The owner who smokes Bluemaster drinks beer
    13) The German smokes Prince
    14) The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
    15) The man who smokes Blends has a neighbor who drinks water

    To make this easier print out the clues and then draw a table with 6 columns and 5 rows. Put the headings: Colour, Nationality, Beverage, Cigarette and Pet into the rows of the last column and work from there. Use a pencil and eraser rather than a pen so you can correct mistakes rather than reprint the page.

    Also there is only 1 correct answer. You will know if you got it right if all of the above clues are correct when you have completed it. Good Luck!:D

    BTW: I got it! Woohoo, I am s**t hot!;) Ok gloating over. Let me know how you got on and please, do not post the answer.

    Zigzag: see above I've edited it. In the version I did there are more clues. I found it and added them above. It makes it a bit easier. Still, saying that it still took me above and hour to do. *lol*

    Look guys, you're not gonna get it staring at a computer screen. Print it out and have a look at it later when you have time. Trust me, once you start you will positively have to keep going until you get it. I know I did. *S*

    Yoyo: finding out the answer doesn't tell you how to get it and even if it did. It doesn't give you the satisfaction of knowing you got it yourself and are "superior" ;) well I guess now you'll never know.
